If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

maybe i just drank too much coffee... but the theme said, "lean towards the exotic"... i think this photo's funny...
lemme explain a little: this is the legendary SASQUATCH, the "mythical" CREATURE said to roam the forests washington state, USA. it's existence is up for debate (although a "good" washingtonian wouldn't too quickly dismiss its existence).
what's NOT debatable is that THIS sasquatch (the Seattle Sonics' mascot) does, in fact exist. what makes this photo unique is that, as far as i know, there's never been a picture taken of him in "the wild" (see trees and sky in the background), as it/he/she normally is only to be found indoors, when groups of 20,000 or so adult humans gather to inbibe mysterious brews and mystery meat made of exotic body parts of other creatures (hotdogs) to watch two smaller groups of much taller and stronger adult male humans toss around a round object known as a basketball.
the "mythical" sasquatch could probably play basketball (he's supposed to be over 7 ft tall), but i'm not sure if it'd have time for games, practices, interviews, etc., as shaving that body looks time-consuming!... and i'm not sure that it'd be easily integrated into the sport bc it's been decades since it's brushed it teeth...
